DAPL Corporation Just Told The Army Corp They Will Do What They Want And Keep Building ILLEGAL Pipeline At Standing Rock - Links and Commentary

If the proverbial villain weren't persistent, the story wouldn't be worth reading. Nor would the end be as satisfying. We have already seen the people of the United States take the lead in ethical integrity far ahead of government in the situation at Standing Rock. We have witnessed our veterans stand up and defeat corporate corruption while State and Federal Officials sat back and did virtually nothing.

For months, the US governance watched in apathy as history was repeated in many ways at Standing Rock. These acting authorities allowed Big Banking and Oil to march over innocent people, and deny them the right to exist in freedom. Nevertheless, these brave Protectors and hundreds of their allies claimed their victory over corporate greed and were able to protect the Missouri River from Big Oil. However, this did not stop the oil cartels from ignoring law and attempting to force themselves on America once again.

The Protectors of Standing Rock knew that the battle for clean water wasn't over. Even though many celebrated over the victorious halt of the pipeline project, many of these Natives knew that there would be other battles to fight. Fortunately, these Natives are no longer alone in the fight to protect the water and Mother Earth.

Don’t celebrate the death of the “Black Snake” just yet?

No sooner than we at camp got word that the Army Corps. of Engineers denied the easement permit for Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. and Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. to drill under the river and continue their illegal pipeline through protected Native Land, the corporations just announced that the Obama Administration’s statement Sunday that it would not at this time issue an “easement” to Dakota Access Pipeline was a purely political action.

The Administration has more or less conceded that when it states it has made a “policy decision”. Some call this Washington code for a political decision.

Over the last four months the Obama Administration has demonstrated that it will say all the right things but never actually force the illegal corporations to act in compliance with the law.

Critics are now saying that the action of denying the permits to Enbridge until January 21st, is simply inaction – intended to delay a decision in this matter until President Obama is out of office.

Business Wire quotes the corporations, responding to Obama that “for more than three years now, Dakota Access Pipeline has done nothing but play by the rules. The Army Corps of Engineers agrees, and has said so publicly and in federal court filings. The Corps’ review process and its decisions have been ratified by two federal courts.”

The Army Corps confirmed this again today when it stated its “policy decision” does “not alter the Army’s position that the Corps’ prior reviews and actions have comported with legal requirements.”

In spite of consistently stating at every turn that the permit for the crossing of the Missouri River at Lake Oahe granted in July 2016, comported with all legal requirements, including the use of an environmental assessment, rather than an environmental impact statement, the Army Corps now seeks to engage in additional review and analysis of alternative locations for the pipeline.

The White House’s directive today to the Corps for further delay is just the latest in a series of overt and transparent political actions by an administration which has abandoned the rule of law in favor of currying favor with a narrow and extreme political constituency.

Thanks for reading.

I started DTM because I feel that informing the people is the most positive and impactful thing I am able to do at this point. I work at my articles as though each one were my job, as I don't quite have the health to keep an actual job right now. Somehow, I get more energized when I know I'm having a positive impact in the lives of others. 

Right now, I rely upon donations and ads to keep my site going. Ideally, we would live in a world free of the need for money of any kind. We will have that world very soon, I believe, but in the mean time, I depend upon this task to sustain me as I do my best to be dependable to you, my readers. I hope “Discerning the Mystery” is a truly positive and progressive experience for you.

Thank you for your support.
